If you have not invested in Advanced Warfare the season pass is still available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and is a cheaper option to buying everything separately.
Activision and Sledgehammer Games have announced their third DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will hit the Xbox platform as a timed exclusive on the 2nd of June.
Called Supremacy, this will add four new maps, Skyrise, Compound, Kremlin and Parliament.
Skyrise is a revamped version of Modern Warfare’s ‘Highrise’, only transplanted to 2054, while Compound is a smaller symmetrical map set in a Colorado wilderness. Kremlin is a medium sized affair, set in the Kremlin and Parliament is a medium map set on a military cargo ship on the River Thames.
The Exo-Zombie’s third episode also drops in this DLC, called Carrier. This adds a new star to the already stellar cast as The Evil Dead’s Bruce Campbell brings along new weapons and Sentinel support squads to battle the episode’s new enemies.
Would you like a glimpse of the new content? Of course you would.
Don’t forget, the pack will be available from 2nd of June and will be available separately or if you’ve got the Season Pass, you’ll have already paid.

There’s tongue in cheek trailers and then there’s Call of Duty trailers – this time the team at Sledgehammer are dressing up their Havoc DLC announcement trailer with an amusing look at just who is behind the Kill cams of COD.
Randall Higgins is the man, the KillCameraman and he gets himself into some rather amusing situations in order to grab those kill cams. Of course the main attraction is a look at the Havoc DLC – the first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.
Available to download from January 27, the DLC includes four new maps, bonus weapons and Exo Zombies – the new co-op mode that could almost be a stand alone game.
Ahead of it’s 27th of January release, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare’s Havoc DLC has had the Hollywood treatment.
Sledgehammer and Activision have already given us the details on the timed-exclusive Xbox DLC, featuring four new maps, Urban, Core, Sideshow and Drift, the bonus AE4 Widowmaker directed energy weapon and the new Exo Zombie story mode that’s incoming and now they’re treating us with gameplay and excerpts from the new storyline in the trailer below.
So, without further ado, in your best film announcer’s voice; Activision presents, a Sledgehammer Games production. Starring John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and John Bernthal.
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Exo Zombies. Enjoy.
Back in December, we brought you news of some of the exclusive features you could find yourself polishing when the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC offering, Havoc, came out.
Well, the time has come for Sledgehammer Games to not only flesh out the DLC, but also tell us when it’ll be hitting the console.
Havoc will be Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s first DLC pack and as seems to be the custom with them, will contain four new maps, a bonus weapon, an upgraded weapon and a little surprise or two.
The new maps included will be:
Urban: Set in a built-up area, with locking and unlocking alleyways, you should feel the need for speed here, so tool-up lightly, ready to move around the streets.
Core: Located in a blown-up nuclear fusion facility, with lots of overwatch placements and decontamination drones ready to clean up the opposition.
Drift: Set in the Rocky Mountains, there’s a really handy 360 degree rotating carousel in the centre, but watch out for the avalanche!
Sideshow: This crazy abandoned fun-park has a manic clown, launching usable bombs from his hat. Be the first to grab one.
The bonus weapon, as we brought you in December, will be the AE4 Directed Energy Assault weapon. The only thing you have to worry about with this is the overheat.
The new mode is looking like a killer. Exo-zombie mode. That’s right, not just zombies, but Exo-zombies. This story mode has four main characters, Oz, the maintenance man, Lileth, the IT technician, Decker, the security guard and the exec, Mr. Khan. These are voiced by Rose McGowan, Jon Bernthal, Bill Paxton & John Malkovich. The mode revolves around a DNA bioweapon that spawned a zombie takeover of an Atlas research facility and is told through the eyes of the four characters.
Exo-Zombie mode also reveals the Cel3 Cauteriser, a tri-barreled, energy shotgun, with a revolving barrel.
I know what you’re thinking, when does all this goodness appear? Well, if you’ve been paying attention you’ll already know that Havoc DLC is scheduled to hit Xbox Live on the 27th of January. If you own the Season Pass, you’ll be able to download it as part of that, if not, you’ll need to buy it separately.
For more information, have a look at the announcement video below.
